Georgia football podcast: Mixed opinions regarding JT Daniels’ outlook ahead of pivotal season

Beginning of the show: Georgia quarterback JT Daniels has been commonly praised throughout the offseason as a possible Heisman candidate and potential first-round pick. However, not all media outlets are apparently as bullish on his outlook. Pro Football Focus’ Anthony Treash recently offered a harsh evaluation of Daniels for the upcoming season on the basis of what Daniels has previously done during his college career -- over a four-game span for the Bulldogs last season and as a freshman starter for USC in 2018. I’ll discuss on today’s show why it’s too early to know which of the opinions regarding Daniels are proven true, and I’ll explain why UGA coach Kirby Smart’s confidence in Daniels should matter in the discussion.

10-minute mark: I recap the latest UGA recruiting news -- including the commitment from three-star wide receiver Dillon Bell and the buzz growing around three-star offensive lineman Griffin Scroggs.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show to preview the start of the Bulldogs’ summer practices.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including an unfortunate injury for LSU quarterback Myles Brennan.

End of show: I award a Golden Shoe winner and update the Gator Hater Countdown.

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
